One comment on “An analogy hard to resist

  1. And I couldn’t resist this…am currently ploughing through Wolf Hall and am impressed by Thomas Cromwell’s various internal musings, one of which goes something like this: ‘there are some in this world who like everything squared up and precise and there are those who will allow some drift at the margins.’ He was of course referring to the precision of the weave and craftsmanship he was observing in a Turkish carpet and then went on to compare this to the way in which we interpret what is written, thus pulling the analogy together beautifully for me. Pardon the pun. 🙂
